I spent most of my growing-up years in Germany. As a teen, I moved to Africa as a Missionary kid. I attended Moody Bible Institute in Chicago where I had a lot of fun rooming with my dear friend Courtney. It was at Moody that I met and married my best friend Joe. Together we have 4 children: Katherine (12), Elias (10), Madeline (6) and Kilian (4) We live in the western suburbs of Chicago where Joe is a pastor and I homeschool our four children.
I love to cook and read, I hate getting up early, and I long for the day when all the rooms of my house are cleaned up at the same time. I probably spend too much time reading blogs, catching up with friends and family on Facebook, and pretending I’m creative on Pinterest. In this season of life God is teaching me self-sacrifice, discipline, the need for more organizational skills and how to apply the gospel to everyday situations and conversations. You can also find me at my personal blog jentorn.com.
Whitney has made a home with her husband Tyler since 1997, where there’s never a dull moment raising three active boys and a spunky, hilarious little girl. You can often find her writing about the real, messy life that happens while raising four kids (with lots of love and laughter mixed in!), intertwining how God faithfully reveals Himself and gives much grace along the way. Whitney gets fired up about women’s ministry, enjoys creating (and eating!) meals with her foodie husband, longs to passionately love God and love people well, and prays that by God’s grace, her children grow up to do the same.
